What is Ionic Capacitor?
Capacitor provides a consistent, web-based APIs that enable to build cross-platform mobile apps that run on iOS, Android, and the Web. Capacitor is a spiritual successor to Apache Cordova and Adobe PhoneGap, with inspiration from other popular cross-platform tools like React Native, but focused entirely on enabling modern web apps to run on all major platforms with ease. Capacitor is backward-compatible with many existing Cordova plugins.
The web development community has been continually innovating and with the recent development of frameworks such as Angular, IONIC, Vue and React, the traditional web applications have now almost become indistinguishable from their native platform-specific peers in terms of functionality.
However, the use of Web-based technologies leads some Apache Cordova applications to run slower than native applications with similar functionality.
